A Message From the Editor

The tech industry has long grappled with an image problem: namely, lack of gender equity and racial diversity. Add to that a new discrimination lawsuit brought against Google by... conservative white men. Yes, the latest lawsuit alleges that white and Asian job seekers faced discrimination for their conservative political views as well as "race-based discrimination as a result of the company’s unlawful hiring quotas." Does the suit have any merit?
